Love and Imagination

Love and imagination are magicians

Who create an image of the Beloved in your mind

With which you share your secret intimate moments.

This apparition is made of nothing at al,

But from its mouth comes the question,

‘Am I not your Loved One?’

and from you the soft reply’Yes.Yes.Yes.’

– Rumi
